I don't mind they're being locked but can
you see the formulas to verify the answers or do you have to believe that all
the formulas are correct?

We have the entire suite of EI spreadsheets and use them whenever
we can. They are locked and cannot be modified so they don’t fit every
application but they save a lot of time when they match the design scenario. I
have only found one error in the code since I have been using them although I
have not used all of them yet. The woodbeam.xls does not report the correct Fb
for timbers thicker than 2”. I pointed this out and they sent me a
corrected spreadsheet the same day.
They are really just one more tool in the
box but not a stand-alone solution in my opinion.
